Do your students attempt to memorize facts and mimic examples to make it through algebra? James Stewart, author of the worldwide, best-selling calculus texts, saw this scenario time and again in his classes. So, along with longtime coauthors Lothar Redlin and Saleem Watson, he wrote this text specifically to help students learn to think mathematically and to develop genuine problem-solving skills. Comprehensive and evenly-paced, the text has helped hundreds of thousands of students. Incorporating technology, real-world applications, and additional useful pedagogy, the fifth edition promises to help more students than ever build conceptual understanding and a core of fundamental skills.
